Francisco Cordero Now A Red

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Reds have come to an agreement with Francisco Cordero. The terms: four years and $46 million, with a $11 million club option for 2012. It's still pending a physical. Rosenthal points out that this is the largest four-year deal ever given to a closer.

The Brewers had offered four years at $42 million. There was no mention of whether Cordero gave them a chance to match the Reds offer.

I'm not sure this brings the Reds much closer to contending. Yes, it's nice to have some security in the ninth inning, but you need guys who can get you there with a lead. The Reds would figure to need another quality starter. But in the weak NL Central, who knows?
